LeBron James is so cringeworthy.

No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan square off in not just a huge rivalry game Nov. 26, but a contest that features massive College Football Playoff implications where whoever wins the game will advance to the show — ignore all of that though, because “King” LeBron James, of course, is making the entire game about himself.

Ohio State Football’s official Twitter account revealed new cleats Nov. 22 that the team will be wearing for the game against Michigan, and they were provided by none other than LeBron himself. The cleats are a version of James’ very first ‘Nike Air Zoom Generation’ sneaker from 2003.

LeBron then followed that up with this tweet:

Did anybody get the same cringe feeling when you saw LeBron‘s tweet?

It was cool when Ohio State did their tweet with the crossed out M (to represent Michigan) with the flashy cleats being showcased. That’s where it ended. When LeBron came in, I couldn’t help but to cringe. Every time he tweets, he reminds me of some 14-year-old boy trying to flex for everybody on social media. It’s just cringeworthy, and I’m sorry, but the way he posts just gives off the impression that he’s, well, dumb — and there’s plenty of content matter out there to back me up on that one.

But that’s not to take anything away from those cleats that he produced, those things are most certainly class A swagoo.

With all of the distaste towards LeBron, and he’s got to be aware of the whopping amount of people who hate him, I’ve actually got a quite simple solution for him to fix that up. LeBron has a ton of resources and elements to be cool, like the Ohio State cleats, but he ruins it with his mouth, and fingers when he’s on social media.

So here’s what you should do, LeBron: Shut the hell up.

Everything will take care of itself after that, with both yourself and the LBJ brand.

Just shut up. It’s that simple.
